EB-3: Skilled or Professional Workers

Skilled or Professional Worker visas are normally temporary visas provided to skilled or professional workers for the purpose of performing work in the U.S. There are three types of EB-3 visas, including EB-3A, EB-3B and EB-3C visas.

  • EB-3A visas are visas for professional workers. Foreign workers must have a bachelor’s degree or equivalent foreign degree and a job offer from a U.S. company to obtain an EB-3A visa.
  • EB-3B visas are visas for skilled workers. Foreign skilled workers must have at least two years of training or experience with a job offer from a U.S. company to obtain an EB-3B visa.
  • EB-3C visas are visas for unskilled workers. Foreign unskilled workers have less than two years training or experience with a job offer from a U.S. company to obtain an EB-3C visa.

During the process where the applicant and his or her spouse are applying for permanent resident status (status as a green card holder), the applicant's spouse is eligible to file for an Employment Authorization Document (EAD).
